It is a little out of the way and the place looks kind of run down but they serve the best Crawfish I have ever experienced. They raise their own and have a special cleansing process the Crawfish go through before they are ready to...More

Hubby and I drove all the way from Tennessee to eat at Hawke's and we were not disappointed. He had the 5 pounder and I had the 3. Big, clean crawfish. Best we've ever had. Friendly, helpful staff. Middle of nowhere but worth it!!

Had dinner here in April 2016 during a Casino run ( over from Houston). We had a little of everything they had to offer, to include the bread pudding. It was the best, can't recommend it enough. You owe to yourself to make the trip.

If you love crawfish, this is your spot. The crawfish are large, clean and yummy. The service was great and the atmosphere perfect for a seafood joint. Don't miss this if you're in the area during crawfish season.

You don't necessarily have to drive to the middle of nowhere - Hawks is now boiling their fantastic crawfish 2 or 3 evenings a week at Warehouse 535 in Lafayette. The atmosphere is pleasant, and the crawfish are to die for. Hawks has seriously spoiled...More

This is a quant old time seafood patio. Very clean, well staffed with top notch service. These people have their own ponds & wait staff is either crawfishermen or married to a crawfisherman. They also have a purging process, where they place the fresh caught...More

Getting to Hawk's is quite a drive, but WELL worth it. You will ask yourself "are we lost, is there really a restaurant called Hawk's out here" as you pass by farmland and crawfish farms!!! Their crawfish were perfectly purged and HUGE. This is truly...More
